What is it About?

A man with a well-to-do life has everything he thought he wanted in life.  Even though anger seeps through what happiness he is not receiving at home. One mistaken phone message changes everything about his life leading him to changes he never imagined possible.  Through a dog Adam sees redemption for both human and canine world.

My Thoughts:

Back and forth each chapter we are introduced to Adam and the next to a dog.  We know eventually the two will met we just don’t know how or when or what circumstances  will bring them together.    Each of these living beings are looking for redemption or just “One Good Life”

I found refreshing the voice of the dog not as usual dumb dog  or needy dog .   This dog owned it’s personality and wasn’t going to change for anyone or so he thought.  The same can be said for Adam until the two meet and only then does redemption seem possible.

A very smart and heart-wrenching book. I would defiantly recommend and say keep to read over again.
